Volunteer

We are so grateful to our many volunteers for the dedication of their time and talents to helping The Mediation Center in our mission to transform conflict into opportunity in communities across Western North Carolina. 

There are a number of ways you or your community group can volunteer for The Mediation Center. 


Volunteer Opportunities
For Groups

Our Family Visitation Program routinely welcomes groups of  volunteers to sanitize our visitation rooms, including all of our children’s games and toys. This helps to keep our supervised visitation program clean, healthy, and safe for the parents and children who use these services.

We may occasionally have additional volunteer opportunities for groups that are not listed above. For more information about how your group might be able to serve our organization, get in touch below!

For Individuals

We have openings for volunteer mediators in Buncombe, Henderson, and Transylvania Counties. Our volunteer mediators complete training on mediation and help in our mission to find common ground.   The next 40-hour training is fully online in early October 2020.  Training is FREE for those who apply and are accepted. Please click here for more information and a link to the online application.  The application deadline is Monday, September 7, 2020.

As of July 2020, The Mediation Center is searching for a volunteer seamstress to help create a black-out, custom-sized window curtain for one of our family visitation rooms. If you or someone you know might be able to help, please reach out!

Do you have another skill or talent that you believe could help The Mediation Center accomplish its mission? We welcome hearing from you about ways that you could serve our organizational mission. E-mail us at info@mediatewnc.org to tell us about your skills and availability or how you envision volunteering at The Mediation Center. 


Internships

We accept interns for the fall, spring, and summer semesters. 

You must be enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate program at an accredited college or university and be completing the internship for course credit. 

To apply, please e-mail your resume, cover letter, and information about the requirements of your program to Corey Hinson, Program Manager at coreyh@mediatewnc.org. Please apply as early as possible; our internship spots often fill up several months in advance.
